It is asparagus soup season. The markets here have shifted from yellow and orange orbs of citrus to banks of green asparagus, baskets of artichokes, bouquets of green garlic, and tiny favas the size of my ring finger. There are massive tangles of purple lilac and eggs for sale in shades of cream, pale blue, and soft mocha
It seemed virtually inevitable, a collab between Goldfrapp and some or other member of Depeche Mode – having not only been longtime Mute labelmates (the latter are now signed to Columbia), but obviously also aesthetic/ideological kin. And so it is that this stunning new version of the former’s “Ocean” has just appeared, with Dave Gahan sharing vocal duties with Ms. Alison
This was a quick, clean out the refrigerator lunch, and a compelling reason to always keep some of these turmeric chickpeas on hand. Turmeric Chickpeas with Garlic Tahini – simple, filling, and all-around good.

On submerging oneself in the language, the place and the unsettling allure of ‘Watership Down.’
How the European villa movie — well stocked with beautiful people, good food, wine, sparkling views of the Mediterranean and a frisson of danger — came to define languor for generations of earnest, industrious Americans.

Where to stay, eat, and explore on the remote subtropical island off Japan’s southern coast.
Finding echoes of Japan’s ancient past, and of the woodlands of Hayao Miyazaki’s animated masterpiece “Princess Mononoke,” deep among the trees of Yakushima island.
Finding value means forsaking some of the most popular grapes and best-known places. That leaves almost an entire world to choose from.
Among the pho and banh mi at this Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, restaurant is hu tieu, the first dish that the chef Ly Nguyen made for the man who would become her husband.
One of the greatest, but perhaps least discussed legacies of punk, was that, despite its share of laddish louts, it was a startlingly gender-blind movement. Indeed, the likes of Deborah Harry, Siouxsie Sioux and Exene Cervenka were paid equal reverence to their male counterparts, while Chrissie Hynde and Joan Jett could be found veritably “reverse gender-bending.” It was, on so many levels, unbelievably exciting.
